Thumbs up!"At first I found that I preferred the taste of this tea unsweetened as I think the pomegranate's tart flavor is best expressed that way. But after I sampled another cup lightly sweetened I found I also liked this very much and appreciated a slightly spicy taste that came through and was really enjoyable. "

This fruit flavored white tea is an attractive mix of big open leaves of white peony along with safflower petals and a few twigs. The scent is both sweet and tart but is not at all artificial or candy-esque.

I heated my water to 190 degrees and steeped around 2 teaspoons of leaf per 8 ounces of water and allowed four minutes for the infusion. I tried this tea both with and without a hint of sweetener and found it tasty either way.

The flavor is sweet, mellow and smooth. The pomegranate taste is pert and tart with the white tea's mellow sweetness balancing out the sharper edges. I like the full and silky quality of the tea. At first I found that I preferred the taste of this tea unsweetened as I think the pomegranate's tart flavor is best expressed that way. But after I sampled another cup lightly sweetened I found I also liked this very much and appreciated a slightly spicy taste that came through and was really enjoyable. The tartness, however, was far more demure in the sweetened cup white the smooth and silky character of the tea becomes more pronounced.

This is very enjoyable hot. The sweetness is never out of control. There's never an artificial flavor to the tea. I think this tea would be excellent iced for summer, too. Recommended.
